Twitter Co-Founder Preaches Change, But Why Doesn't Twitter Change? - Page 2
2) Lists, like DMs, are not easily accessible. I don't have any numbers to cite, but I am betting Lists are not used by the majority of account holders. I asked a few folks who use Twitter, and only one of the five knew what Lists are. The number of those five using Lists? Zero. It's time to give the spotlight to Lists. I suggest Lists get a spot on the home page above the main feed. The default feed filter could be labeled "All Following" with neighboring filters at the right for each created or followed list. This way, sorting through the noise will be almost effortless.
3) There's a lack of love for Windows Phone (WP) users. Seriously, what's the deal, Twitter? Your WP app is pretty much the same since its launch in late 2010. How difficult is it to make your WP app as robust as its iOS and Android counterparts? Third-party solutions like Rowi and Carbon have gained a loyal following, which says a lot about your own efforts. Have some WP pride, and show users who dare go against the popular OS grain some love.
4) Twitter API changes are said to hurt its growth. This one is more on the developer end of things, but follow me here. Devs are essentially free laborers that expand Twitter to capture new users (the ecosystem), albeit for their own benefit and not Twitter's (but still). With pending changes, such as placing new limits, creating apps that use the Twitter API are going to be more challenging.
